Quick delicious healthy dinner.


Fajitas! One of my fav meals because it’s so nutritionally balanced (well except for the high salt saeasoning if it’s shop bought) and tastes like a treat meal!

You can pretty much add whatever veg you want but I add the classic pepper and onion. Then choose your protein source usually chicken and add into the carby bit – the wrap. I do use a shop bought seasoning just for quickness as I usually cook these on a weekday after a long day at work/uni. But if you are feeling adventurous you can try and make it yourself and it will reduce the salt content.

I usually go for wholemeal wraps because they are higher in fibre and lower in sugar. If you are aiming for weight loss or want a smaller portion only use one wrap as this drops the calories by 200. There also much lower calorie wraps available than the type I used so shop around to find the best for you.  I am aware this recipe is quite a high calorie one! 

It’s a great meal that is quick to cook if you are cooking for a larger quantity of people too and usually goes down a treat! Like most Mexican food!

Ingredients:
Half an onion

Half a red pepper

Half a green pepper

Simply chop all veg and chicken. Brown the chicken in a pan with the oil. Add the chopped veg and cook until soft. Add the fajita seasoning. Meanwhile heat the wraps in the microwave for around 30 seconds. Add greek yogurt to each wrap and spread around. Then add the filling and fold up. As easy as that!
